Abstract Intravitreal injection of bevacizumab has been shown to satisfactorily treat retinopathy of prematurity; nevertheless, the safety of antivascular endothelial growth factor therapy in children remains uncertain. We report a patient with bilateral, zone 1, stage 3 plus retinopathy of prematurity who was treated with combined laser photocoagulation and intravitreal ranibizumab injection and demonstrated full regression at 3 months after injection but then developed bilateral retinal detachments 1 month later.
